My work oscillates between the second and third dimension, examining the concrete nature of sculpture in relation to the illusory space of painting. Challenging the act of seeing, carefully crafted geometric constructions create the illusion of three-dimensional space while simultaneously undermining their plausibility as objects in subtle ways. Investigating outdated formalisms and Modernist trends, my “object” paintings instigate a controlled confrontation between reality and illusion.

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.

Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
